While baseball players are constantly being told to improve strength, power, and speed, it
is extremely important that they resist the temptation to use steroids.
Too many student/athletes go for the "easy
fix" by using anabolic steroids without any knowledge of the serious problems that occur. Doctors have attributed over 70
side effects including, impotence, acne, water retention, aggression, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, palpitations,
jaundice, and death.
Not only are steroids extremely harmful to your health, but they are also banned by the NCAA
along with a list of other drugs and supplements. This list also includes steroid replacements like DHEA, androstenedione,
If the NCAA ever finds traces of any of these drugs in a player's bloodstream, they
will be banned from playing college baseball.
